Struggling with furniture placement and paint colour

I am trying to figure out what kind of furniture to buy (the furniture in the picture is not ours) and how to place the furniture in the room to make the best use of the space.  It's challenging because the main entrance to the house leads right into the living room and there isn't an entryway.  It's also tricky because the fireplace is between the front door, the back door and the kitchen door, which means we can't put furniture in front of it, otherwise it blocks the pathway.  The other issue is the lack of wall space because of the windows.  I would love to hear suggestions on how we can make this room work.  Any thoughts on furniture placement (including a place for the TV), paint colour or window treatments would be greatly appreciated.  I would like to make the room to feel bigger and more open. Thank you! :)
